New Nokia C2 "Nebula" - Live Big, Live Bold!

Hi all,

Okay, this isn't very new any more, but there haven't been any posts about this phone on the forums yet so it's still new here! 😁

Here's the links to the promo page, the promo video and the specs below. The codename of this phone is "Nebula", thanks Google (but not what you think) 😉

16GB storage is pretty good for an entry level device. It has the assistant button which it quite interesting at this price. AND it's 4G, although a pretty weak modem (Cat 4). Weak camera but that is to be expected, but 5MP can still be totally fine, it depends on the quality of the hardware (sensor, lens, ISP) and the software. But this phone doesn't have the Camera Go app, apparently, which is only available on the 1.3 at present.

What are your thoughts?

I wonder why this phone and the C1 don't get dedicated subforums, maybe it's because it's being sold only in non-English speaking countries? Seems like a bit of an odd choice to me.

Cheers 🙂

    Choosing UNiSoc aka spreadtrum is pathetic decision. Atleast they should have used mediatek mt6739 which is a very cheap SoC .

  • In my country, you can get the younger brother of this lovely looking device -C1- for only $62. I wonder how much will this one cost, in case it makes its way to us? 🤔

    Hi @DibyaXP,

    What's the difference between the MT6739 and the UniSoc Soc which is in the C2?

    @EJofYeman I've no idea, but it will be cheaper than the 1.3.

    Cheers 🙂
